FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Because We Believe In You...

Is physiotherapy necessary (does it work)?

It’s important to understand that physiotherapists dedicate their lives to the reduction of pain and the restoration of movement. The profession of physiotherapists pride themselves on basing their treatments on scientific, evidence-based practices. Physiotherapy is highly effective in treating a wide range of conditions without the use of invasive techniques or harmful pharmaceuticals.

Do I need a doctor’s referral to book an appointment?

Physiotherapy is an independent branch and you don’t need a referral before seeing a physiotherapist.

Can physiotherapists eliminate my pain for good?

Pain is a defence mechanism that our bodies use to restrict motion and alert us to a problem. Physiotherapy cannot eliminate all pain related problems. Sometimes surgery or other medical interventions are necessary. However, in the vast majority of situations, physiotherapy can help to eliminate pain permanently. Physiotherapists will guide clients in steps they can take to stay pain-free in the future by altering the patterns and motions that originally caused the pain.

What exactly does a physiotherapist do?

Physiotherapists are an important component in rehabilitation, treatment and prevention of acute and chronic conditions.  A physiotherapist uses a wide range of modalities to treat. Treatment can include manual therapy, therapeutic exercises, hydrotherapy, acupuncture and mechanical devices like ultrasound and tens machines.

What exactly is physiotherapy?

If you are not quite sure what a physiotherapist does and how they can help you, then you are not alone. Unless you have previously been to a physiotherapist, there is a good chance that you might not know exactly what is a physiotherapist and what do they do. A physiotherapist is a health care professional that promotes movement,  helps ease pain and restore function. They assess a client’s condition and develop a treatment plan unique to that individual. According to the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, the official description of a physiotherapist is, “The heart of the physiotherapy profession understands how and why movement and function take place. Physiotherapists are highly skilled and autonomous health care professionals who provide safe quality client-centred physiotherapy through a commitment to service availability, accessibility and excellence.”  A physiotherapist works with people of all ages and treats a vast amount of health conditions.
